Max Weight: This is the maximum weight allowed for the given encumbrance category, determined by the character’s Weight Allowance (‘WA’, based on Stamina) and Maximum Press (‘MP’, based on Muscle). In the rare case where the character’s Weight Allowance exceeds his Maximum Press, the character effectively has only 2 encumbrance categories: Unencumbered (up to a max of WA) and Max (anything over WA).

Movement: This is the character’s maximum speed, expressed as a fraction of his base speed (determined by his race). Any fractions should be rounded up to the nearest whole number.
